Great :)

FWIW, the kmix in Fedora may be a pure ALSA one or an older version of
my kmix work. I spoke to the Fedora guy in charge of those pacakges just
the other day and he was in the process of updating the kmix patches.

If your kmix in Fedora there are configuration settings that prevent it
from restoring the sound on login. My integrations patches automatically
disable this now but older versions wont. So I suspect that it's simply
a matter of manually configuring kmix to not save/restore settings until
it is updated with the latest version of my patches.

I believe the updates have already been shipped in Fedora. I don't
follow the updates there very closely so can't say for certain. "rpm -q
--changelog pulseaudio" will probably tell you more.
